The interactive mobile platform for skill practice, sharing, and validation, originally available exclusively on iPad®, is now available for the iPhone®.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 29, 2015) –SkillFitness today announced that its mobile, e-learning and practice platform is now available on the iPhone for enterprise customers and training content partners. The platform functions identically and seamlessly on both iPhone and iPad devices, for users with a registered username and password.
Bill Young, President and co-founder of SkillFitness said, “The expansion of the platform to the iPhone allows users to use their preferred device(s) in an integrated and interchangeable manner. For example, a learner can watch a training video on the large screen of their iPad, practice the lesson on their iPhone video camera – much like an ordinary video call – and even use their iPad as a demonstration or visual presentation tool in their practice video.”
Bryant Pfeiffer, Vice President of Club Services with Major League Soccer and founder of their award winning National Sales Center, an early client of SkillFitness, added “The addition of the iPhone app is a game changer. As someone who travels a lot, I am able to interact and provide feedback and coaching on the go without needing my iPad or laptop.”
